The Inside Indonesia Photography Competition

This year Inside Indonesia commemorates its 30th anniversary. To celebrate this occasion, we are pleased to launch the Inside Indonesia Photography Competition. The competition calls for images that reflect the organisation's broad interest in social, political and environmental issues. The theme of the competition is taken from the Inside Indonesia website:

"We aim to raise awareness about the diversity of Indonesian society, and about the struggles of those Indonesians who aim to achieve greater democracy, human rights, gender and racial equality, tolerance and environmental sustainability." 


At the conclusion of the competition there will be 2 prizes awarded.
